Her memory may be gone but her past isn’t.

Ash and Cammy have been through hell and now they’re back but on separate roads.

It takes Ash hitting rock bottom before he’s determined to fight to get their love back where it belongs.

For Cammy, new friends replace forgotten ones and MMA fighting steals her heart that Ash is determined to possess a piece of again.

Ash has the plan to get her back, but he didn’t plan for her forgotten past to catch up with his planned future.

Rapid clicking from the barrel of my .45 caliber echoes in my head. The tremble in my hands is shuttering through my entire body. Sweat rolls from my forehead into my eye and I reach up, not able to remember when I buzzed my hair last. The soft bristle over my palm answers the question I should have known. I never let my hair get long because this desert heat has potential to kill you. Shaving my head only offers a small amount of relief, but it’s something.

The sweat and shaking probably makes me look nervous, but I’m not. The only outcome of this standoff results in me winning. The heat probably has me dehydrated, which explains the shaking, but there’s no time for water. I have to say my apologies and hope firing this bullet won’t be taken personal. It’s nothing against them. But this is a war.

“Put the gun down, Ash,” Danny’s nervous voice unexpectedly comes from my left and makes me flinch. “Stop! Stop. Just put it down.”

Shaking my head no, I squeeze my eyes closed and release the building moisture that I don’t want to admit to being tears. I lift my left hand until it’s aligned with my sight and stare at the picture of Cammy.

I can’t talk right now, but I can speak my peace in my head and I’m sorry. I’m sorry for everything I couldn’t protect you from. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you until it was too late that I loved you. I’m sorry I left you for the army. I’m sorry I love you as much as I do because being without you makes me feel like I don’t know who I am. And I can’t do this without you.

The clicking of the barrel off my teeth has seemed to stop. The rolling sweat from my hairline has dried. But the tears, they remain and are leaking with the will to hold on.

“Ash, she wouldn’t want you to do this, man. Put the fucking gun down!”

Looking from the blinding sun I take a moment before flashing my sight to the apology letter for my dad that’s sitting on a rock and I hope it makes it home. Then I look back to the picture in hand for one last look at Cammy. The second my eyelids shut off the world in front of me I’m shoved off my knees and as I fall sideways the gun rips out of my mouth and fires.

“Ow!” Danny howls and my sight lands on him before I react.

He’s holding his jaw and ear so I abandon my thoughts of suicide and rush to help my friend.

“You asshole!” he screams at me before colliding his fist with my nose.

Stumbling back and rapidly blinking, the vision of the desert is fading away and I realize I’m in our bathroom of the beach house. I’m not deployed. I’m in Florida and suffering day ninety-four of Cammy leaving me and disappearing.

I admit that I had to go back and read book one to get the background info on Cammy and Ash and where their story began.  Cammy and Ash were intense characters that were raging a fight for different reasons.  Cammy has no memory of her past or her love for Ash but she is the love of his life that he could never forget.  While Ash was trying to hold on to the woman that Cammy was she is trying to survive becoming the woman that she needed to be.  Cammy was a fighter in many ways.  She was so strong and yet vulnerable at the same time.  Ash was the perfect book boyfriend that stayed on the edges of Cammy’s life until she as able to let him back in.  This book was incredible to read but made me question where the story was going to lead.  I love those kinds of romance that you never know where it is headed but you stay until the last page to find out.  That is how this story was and worth every minute of it.
